Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton took to social media Wednesday to blast a federal appellate court’s declining on Tuesday to lift an injunction against President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

“5th Circuit is wrong on immigration. @POTUS followed precedent, took steps for families when GOP House wouldn’t. Must continue the fight. -H,” Mrs. Clintontweeted Wednesday morning.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, whose state is part of the lawsuit against Mr. Obama’s actions the president announced in November to shield millions of additional illegal immigrants from the threat of deportation, predicted Wednesday on Fox News that the case would be tied up in the courts to the point that it would be unlikely for the actions to take effect while Mr. Obama was in office.

But Mrs. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, has said that if elected she would try to go even further than Mr. Obama has on the issue.
